panic in the disco.

Standard

(not me, but I had the same face when looking in the mirror this morning)

ever have one of those mornings

when you wake up very suddenly

notice it’s not dark outside

like it always is

when you wake up to go to work

you text your work partners

panicked and feeling guilty

to apologize

say you’ll be there asap

wondering why you didn’t hear your alarm go off

thinking about how you can get ready and do a make-over in 5 minutes

then begin to text your bosses to say the same

only to realize in the middle of typing

that it is

actually sunday

not monday

 have to type again

to apologize for waking everyone up?

just asking….

very little.

Standard

after a fun afternoon 

and wonderful evening

spent visiting and playing

grandies are tired and tucked in

when suddenly the tears come

missing mom and dad

and after

a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom

everyone settles in for the night

including bunny

 does it get any better than that?

snoozetern.

Standard

If your summer plans already include laying in bed all day, you may be the perfect fit for the Mattress Firm’s new job opening. The company is looking for a “snoozetern” to test mattresses at their Houston, Texas headquarters by sleeping in them.

The Mattress Firm’s intern will be paid to spend 30 hours a week lounging in bed this summer. Job duties include assessing “the optimal head and foot positions” for reading, eating, binge-watching, and of course, sleeping in bed. When they’re awake, the snoozetern will also be responsible for creating written and video content for Mattress Firm’s website and social media platforms.

The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has housing and transportation access in the Houston area, knows how to use video editing software, and is “passionate about sleep and comfort.” Mattress Firm will select three to five finalists out of the applicants to create a short video pitching themselves, and from those candidates one will be picked for the job.

To apply, head to Mattress Firm’s website and submit your resume and relevant information. But you’d better hurry: Applications are due May 3, and the intern will be selected by the middle of May.

“every morning is a battle between the superego and the id, 

and i am a mere foot soldier with mud and a snooze button on her shield.”
